the world on a wide array of global topics,
including: achievement testing, censorship,

distribution, foreign aid (political and economic
aspects), food (world problems, consumption
patterns), cultural adaptation, comparative health-
care systems, terrorism, political correctness, agricultural innovation, legislation of morality, sexual
violence and exploitation, white collar crime.
The new 2nd edition also features biographical profiles of the major contributors to the study of the
social sciences, past and present.
